Mr Russell Davidson

Mr Russell Davidson

Russell hails from Harrogate and is a solicitor who qualified with a major international firm in London where he lived for 11 years. He worked on the original redevelopments of Canary Wharf and Billingsgate Market and later grew homesick when he acted for Harrogate Borough Council on redeveloping the Victoria Gardens site. He is a property law expert whose expertise includes landlord and tenant issues, financings, joint ventures and complex development projects. Clients include developers, investors, SME’s and public authorities. A substantial part of Russell’s practice is for the leisure sector. He has led a number of multi-million pound acquisitions, disposals, re-financings and developments in the licensed trade and hotel industries, as well as drawing up management agreements for use within those sectors.

Russell is currently Chairman of the Royal Hall Restoration Trust and a Governor of York St. John University. He is also a trustee at Henshaws Society for the Blind. Former roles include Governor of the Sports Aid Foundation, and a Director of Harrogate Theatre. He also started the West Yorkshire Professional Firms Group of ‘Business in the Community’. In his spare time Russell loves cooking and fine wine, walking, cycling and reading history books.
